I was trying to get some time alone organizing my bedroom when I heard my oldest call from his bedroom where he was playing with his brother, “Mom, we’re practicing flying!” What I found was two beds pushed close together, with only about an eighteen inch gap between them, and two boys flying from one bed to the other.
I said, “Oh boy,” and walked away to put the baby down for a nap. I wonder if I should have stopped them but it was a huge hurdle not to freak out over the moved furniture and completely toy-strewn floor. And I say no to so many things and they weren’t being “bad” but they were just using up some winter energy. As long as they don’t get hurt, I’ll think I made the right decision.
What would you have done?
